deathly-hall0ws: To the girl asking about purple hair: I currently have a strip of it and have had it for a year. I'm a cosmetologist and I can tell you no unnatural color will last longer then two weeks without fading (washing every day/every other day). The only way to keep it up is to continually color it - I do mine every 2-3 weeks. It's always best to wash under cold water, to keep the cuticle flat and the hair color particles sealed in the strand. That's about all I can offer, I'm open to any questions!
